which Shaw HDPVR used?

Shaw are charging $250 for their HDPVR.
Is there another brand on the market that I can use for the same thing (satellite)?

So, it has to be bought from Shaw or used?

If you buy from kijiji - call shaw with the serial number to confirm it is not stolen and have the unit's ownership transferred before you hand over the cash.

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

And doing that and being careful can work out very well.
I'm sure you're not in my area but I have a 3400 sitting because they go quite cheap these days.

So, they have SKinny at $25 + $250 receiver = $550 for 1 year
or I can get a load of channels with free receiver for $600 for 1 year? and then presumably downgrade to skinny after 1 year?
